Small Business Saturday

Americans throughout the country have stuffed themselves with a delicious Thanksgiving meal, spent valuable time with friends and family, and participated in the hustle and bustle of Black Friday. The time for holiday shopping is now in full gear. Before you turn your attention towards Cyber Monday, we encourage you to get involved in Small Business Saturday.

The first Small Business Saturday was celebrated on November 27, 2010. Since then, the Shop Small movement has grown to reach millions of individuals, businesses, and communities. This movement is a monumental effort to support small businesses across the country. Each year on the Saturday following Thanksgiving, American Express cardholders and local communities are encouraged to “shop small”, helping to promote and embrace these American gems.

Delysia Chocolatier has been a local Austin business for over 7 years now, and we are utterly excited to be participating in our first ever Small Business Saturday today. We invite you to come to our new Boutique Chocolate Shop at the Delysia Chocolatier Culinary Center and sample some of our unique chocolate confections. Explore our gift-worthy chocolate molded Santas, Christmas Trees, and Nutcrackers, along with seasonal truffle collections, chocolate barks, and hot chocolate mixes — all made right here at our Culinary Center.  We use only fine quality chocolate and the freshest ingredients to create chocolates near perfection.  Notable flavors like eggnog, peppermint, and gingerbread will be sure to get you in the holiday spirit. Whether you’re searching for stocking stuffers, holiday decorations, or desserts for family feasts, Delysia will delight and deliver.

Give the gift of Delysia this holiday season!

Nicole Patel

Nicole Patel is the proprietor of and chocolatier for Delysia Chocolatier. In 2006 while pregnant with her first son, Nicole made a batch of chocolate truffles as holiday gifts. To the delight of friends and family, she continued to create chocolates as a way to relieve stress from her corporate engineering job. In 2008, a chance trip to Becker Vineyards led to Nicole being the first in Texas to make truffles using local wines. Within five years, what started as a hobby turned Delysia into one of the Top Ten Chocolatiers in the Americas, as selected by the International Chocolate Salon.
